What We Do

Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise

Since we opened our doors, our mission is to create new economic opportunities for members of our community who have challenges finding employment.

Why? Because a stronger workforce leads to a stronger society. As part of that mission, we create social impact businesses that put people first. The businesses we start do more than create jobs; they strengthen our communities by solving social and environmental problems through sustainable, market-based solutions.

Our social enterprise division includes: iScan, Details Deconstruction, Brick + Board, and City Seeds.

Social enterprises produce higher social returns on investment than following the traditional non-profit model. We value partnerships, and are always looking to grow our social enterprise division. If you have an idea that will benefit society through economic development, contact us today.

Social Innovation Fund

Humanim’s new Social Innovation Fund directly supports our Social Enterprise Division, dedicated to creating jobs and economic opportunity in some of our most challenged communities. Your contribution to Humanim’s Social Innovation Fund allows us to maximize our impact and continue to create social impact businesses that elevate our communities and the individuals we serve.

Details Deconstruction

Details Deconstruction does what demolition can’t – create jobs and reduce environmental waste. A labor intensive, green alternative to demolition, Details adheres to a triple bottom line business model that considers social, environmental, and financial impact. Every Details project diverts salvageable materials from overflowing landfills, and creates jobs for skilled crew members who have faced barriers to employment.
